  1. so is the 1680v2 multi unlocked? im currently on a locked i5 4590 with bios mod so itll reach 3,7 on all cores. i just find the 4 cores/threads not enough
  2. Hi everyone i'm looking to maybe upgrade my z87x oc from gigabyte to the x79 platform. this is mostly because i want the increased core count. my question however is, can i overclock xeons on x79? i dont care if i have to change the microcode and stuff. i cant really find a definitive answer.

    Thanks a lot man! I'll tell him
  4. 30% fan speed is quite low under load, did you ever take the card apart?

    He also said he heard a high pitched beep through his headset (not coming from the system). Happen to know if that means anything?

    The gpu drivers are alright, I'm a bit scared of trying my own gpu. And ripping my powersupply out of my own PC is a bit of a hassle but I could definitely try it.

    On what side?

    Yeah, I get it but here's the thing. He got a new PC. In one week the gpu wouldn't give a signal. After long troubleshooting we settled on a replacement card. Then he's got that card 1 week and exactly the same thing happens. Isn't that a bit weird? Because when he inserted the new card the system worked again.

    The problem is that I don't live near him and I don't have spare parts to try, do you happen to know if a bad psu can kill a gpu over time or if it'll always be instantly
  10. Hi everyone. some time ago (3 weeks) I build a PC for a friend, at first it worked alright, but then suddenly he didn't get signal from his gpu. Because he uses am4 r5 2600 there is no igpu to make troubleshooting easy, we did it anyways. Eventually he ended up returning his gpu for a new one, in one week this one died as well, does anyone have advice on possible reason? I'm thinking it might be the power supply.

  11. I am currently running an HD 7970 bios, it has higher base clocks and gives me 6mvolt more, but my temps are still so low, I just hate that I haven't unlocked the full potential
  12. I am running stable at 1,256v, what do you mean by killing the gpu? Temperature wise or because of voltage spikes or something?
  13. It seems to be locked at 1250/1256
  14. if i run it at 1200mhz it crashes and at 1195 there are artifacts
  15. hi everyone, i have a windforce hd 7950 v2 (the one with the vrm backplate). i can run it at full overclock and will only hit 72ish C. https://www.3dmark.com/fs/16582319 (these are my firestrike results) my problem is that at 1190mhz i start to get artifacts, this is caused by my vCore being to low. are there ways to raise the vCore above 1.25?
